WOYWW

Hi everyone. Hope you're having a lovely day! :) If you'd like to know what WOYWW is all about please visit Julia's blog.

As promised earlier, this is a photo of my storage thing from Works. It was designed as a paint brush holder and it costs... 99p. Isn't fantastic?


To maximise the space I've got, I've put a round cardboard holder on top of it where I keep my glitter glue and some other sticky things.

This is my drawer full of wooden stamps and even more sticky things. I think I've got too much glue in my crafty room. ;)

To my right on my desk my favourite punches and die cutting Sizzix.

A wooden box full of scissors and other things I use the most often. I've got it handy next to where I sit. I've put metal wire around the wooden holder and put some hooks on it. Now I can hang my scissors and paper distressing tool on it. Otherwise they'd get lost.

CD rack. It's on it's side so you see it as I see it (if it makes sense). If you're wondering what the scribblings are, the labels are colour coded as well as described. Green - flowers and leaves. Yellow - stamps of girls/boys/bears. Hash sign - Christmas. Purple - backgrounds.

Glitter glues in cardboard box with dividers.


Happy crafting! :)

You know what Maggie - you DO have a thing for glues! You also have a real knack for organising too - and seeing the potential for that brush holder is genius!

Cath Wilson said...

Oh gosh, you're tidy and organised! Love it. LOVE those scissors on the side of the scissor box, too. That wotsit from the Works is a gem - would be perfect for Promarkers and copics - might just have to go get one ASAP!!! TFS. Happy WOYWW! Cath x

Hey - I've got one of those paintbrush holders, altho mine is actually full of paintbrushes, lol. I tied a huge bunch of fibres to my paper distresser so that I could always find it, it works pretty well. Love your storage solutions!

Cath said...

Thanks for the look around.

I am totally impressed by your storage solutions, including that brush holder and how you modified it. I had my distressing tool for ONE day and lost it. I wish I had your tip when I did. Great use of your available space. Happy WOYWW.

Carola Bartz said...

I love the storage thingy and how you changed it to put more sticky stuff on toip of it. Now, this I call creative!

JoZart said...

The Works storage pot is ideal for brushes etc., methinks I will have to go there pretty soon. You seem to be very organised and with great ideas too. Thanks for sharing a snoop.

Sue - thank you. Have a great day too. :)

Julia Dunnit, Cheryl - Thank you. :) I bought a pack of several different glues on a craft sale, then I forgot about that and bought even more glue. Silly me.

Cath Wilson - thank you. :) Unfortunately the paint brush holder isn't big enough for Promarkers :/ but at least it's good for other pens.

Cath - thanks for visiting. :)

Helen - thank you for visiting and have a fab day. :)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth - thank you and have a lovely day!

I'm high-fiving you on the brush holder - got one of those myself and I just LOVE it!

Maggie's Crafts said...

nerllybird - Thank you. Brilliant idea with the fibers. The tool is very small so it's easy to loose it. Thanks for visiting. :)
